Combining contributions from 44 parents and professionals who live with and/or provide services to children with autism and autism spectrum conditions, this book is one of the most practical guides available. It presents a fascinating and wide-ranging array of proven ways to counteract the myriads of sensory processing impairments that permeate the symptom picture of autism. It shows how to prevent problems and come up with “what should I do if…” solutions. The hundreds of strategies are clustered into autonomy skills (bathing, hygiene, launching the day), traveling, friendship skills, family relationships, summertime and outdoor activities, school issues, community events and outings, and holidays.
